Wolfsburg - A Rising Powerhouse

Wolfsburg 4-3 Schalke WOO!!

Table

1) Hertha Berlin

2) Wolfsburg

3) Bayern Munich

4) Hoffenheim

Top duos in Germany:

Dzeko + Grafite = 29 goals (Wolfsburg)

Ibisevic + Ba = 29 goals (Hoffenheim)

-------------------

What you guys think about this team? They have improved a shitload ever since Felix Magath (The best coach in the world) arrived here in Summer of 2007 and ever since Grafite, Misimovic and Dzeko arrived to the team. Without them, Wolfsburg would be fighting relegation.

Magath has been doing great business. In 2007, he bought 21 year old Dzeko for 4,000,000. Now Dzeko is 22 years old and Magath rejected a 15,000,000 Euro offer from Sevilla! This means he could sell this guy for over 20,000,000. He's investing real good on young players... that's how Wolfsburg is running at the moment. Selling these high-profile players for tens of millions after buying them for a couple of million.

Conclusion: In this way, Wolfsburg can become a German powerhouse in no time due to investing in young players and selling them for so much money, buying more young players and selling them in the future as well. Wolfsburg has already begun to feel the effects.

Felix Magath recently stated in "Kicker" that Edin Dzeko is priceless and is afraid he might not be able to find a good enough replacement for him if he sells him. His ambitions for next year: Win the Bundesliga.

I still think that Bayern Munich will win the German league. However next season it will be interesting.

I do agree though Edin Dzeko is some player.

theres still a long way to go, to decide who will be the champions of germany, i still think Bayern will grind out the bundesliga title in the last match of the bundesliga, anyone can still win it but when experience comes in hand thats something wolfsburg doesn't have.. When will Wolfsburg be glorious in champions league, probably never

Exactly, winning the Bundesliga once doesn't exactly make a powerhouse. Stuttgart are a prime example since winning the title in 2007 they haven't hit those heights again.

NB your theory is rather strange because you are saying that if three players hadn't have arrived at the club then they would be fighting relegation yet with only three players they are now a "powerhouse".

If they can get 3 players like that, they can get more. That's my theory. They bought Dzeko for 4,000,000. They can sell him now for over 15,000,000. Then they can buy 3 more young players that can end up as Dzeko's qualities today. Get it? It's all exponential. It's Wolfsburg's strategy. Also Magath's strategy, he's a genius. He proved it with Bayern Munich too. Every huge club in Germany had a start. Why not Wolfsburg?

Whoever thought Chelsea would ever be big?

Good now you've explained it but I still think that they won't be a powerhouse.

By the way a lot of people though Chelsea would be big when they had millions pumped into them.

I think Hoffenheim might turn out like Chelsea. BUT... the Hoffenheim owner never really bought one player for so much money. Not one profile player. That's why Hoffenheim should be respected, because most of the players are young and improving in the club. I believe Hoffenheim is the youngest club in the top 5 league with average age of 22.9.

Maybe a powerhouse in Germany. Powerhouse in Europe would be difficult. I think in the next 5 years, it might not happen. But anythings possible in the future.
